After I rented a bedroom at the tavern, I was wandering around in the town streets. It was the morning, the sun shined in the sky but the temperature was mild.
I was thinking about my next destination, I had no idea of what I should do now. Sudenly, a strong feeling overwhelmed me, I was sure that I was followed.
Stopped in my tracks, I slowly started to turn around. The man who followed me was standing in the middle of the street, right in front of me. How I didn't notice him earlier?
This man was well-dressed, in an aristocratic fashion. He was about five feet tall and he gave off a smell of delicate fragrance. His pale face was long, perfectly shaved. I couldn't see his hair because he was wearing a hooded red velvet cloak. His piercing eyes was fixed on me.
I felt a little awkward, why did this man follow me? However, his stand wasn't ominous, so I started to relax and I asked to him:
"May I help you, sir?"
"Maybe it's me who can help you, young man", he replied with a contemptuous tone.
So, he began to tell me the reason of his presence. During his tale, my surprise was gradualy increasing. This man told me that he's been a friend of my father for a long while, and my father asked him to look after me when the time come.
"And the time came, young man, you're a part of this town now and according to my old friend's desire, I'll keep an eye on you and try to guide you with my knoledge of how the live goes here".
I thought to myself it was always a new thing to discover about my father's will… Realy, I don't even know the man who spawned me, but it seemed that he's planed every part of my live so far…
This time, I had to admit it, it could be very usefull to have an advisor in this city I didn't know.
